Ballet is the foundation of all dancing. Through traditional principles, our ballet classes emphasize proper placement, grace, poise, and the technique needed to be proficient in other areas of dance. We recommend that all students take at least one ballet class per week.

In addition to interpreting the mood of the music, students also develop coordination of mind and body and a more perceptive sense of rhythm, timing, and phrasing. In our tap classes, students will learn the FUNdamentals of tap and rhythmic patterns in both Broadway (theater) and Rhythm (hoofer) tap dance styles.
Jazz builds on the techniques learned in the ballet course and focuses on building strong technique, strength, and flexibility.
